Autopsy on victim of fire

An autopsy was performed Thursday on the victim of a house fire in Cass County’s Calvin Township.

Sheriff Capt. Lyndon Parrish said results showed the victim found inside the residence in the 17000 block of Chain Lake Street died from injuries sustained in that fire. Foul play is not suspected in the death.

The cause of the fire has been ruled undetermined, as no evidence was found to lead investigators to believe that arson is suspected.

A positive identification is pending, though the owner of the residence is 78-year-old Lucy Pargo. She lived at the residence alone and has not been seen since.

Investigators believe she is likely the victim of the fire.
